Nice to have a drink overlooking the sea. Very relaxing. Did not eat but the food looked nice. Good place to watch the sun going down

Great service, nice cozy bar/restaurant. Came here on a chilly, overcast day and loved looking out at the ocean behind the bar. Definitely recommend the seafood chowder, and fish & chips of course!!

Got off our bus and twenty of us rocked up. It was no trouble for them at all and the young lady that served us and was extremely helpful. Food was great no complaints from anyone. Would recommend to anyone.
